    What AI Ought to Do | Head of Ought.org's Engineering, James Brady, Shares why Elon Musk & the Future of Life Institute are asking us to SLOW Down

    What AI Ought to Do | Head of Ought.org's Engineering, James Brady, Shares why Elon Musk & the Future of Life Institute are asking us to SLOW Down

    James Brady, Head of Engineering at Ought.org and one of the impressive signatories on the
    open letter to "pause Giant AI Experiments" (in addition to: Elon Musk and some other notable minds and leaders in society including:


    Steve Wozniak, Co-founder, Apple
    Andrew Yang, Forward Party, Co-Chair, Presidential Candidate 2020, NYT Bestselling Author, Presidential Ambassador of Global Entrepreneurship


    Yoshua Bengio, Founder and Scientific Director at Mila, Turing Prize winner and professor at University of Montreal
    Stuart Russell, Berkeley, Professor of Computer Science, director of the Center for Intelligent Systems, and co-author of the standard textbook “Artificial Intelligence: a Modern Approach"
    Bart Selman, Cornell, Professor of Computer Science, past president of AAAI

    and 27559 other well known souls) helps us understand the many implications of AI, society and very importantly for us, Education.

    We spend more than the average time with James exploring his life as a son of teachers (who I truly admire), a Cambridge University grad and one of the earliest Y Combinator alumni. His thoughts are ones that I want to come back and listen to over and over again. I feel like the didactic impact from just this conversation is worth at least 3 or 8 listens to this one interview.

    I highly recommend contrasting it with Lex Fridman's interview of Sam Altman (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_Guz73e6fw) or even Guy Raz's interview with him (https://podcasts.apple.com/nl/podcast/hibt-lab-openai-sam-altman/id1150510297?i=1000580232536) or even Reid Hoffman's (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPJIpx3KscY). I think Tim Ferris also did one with him at one point, but I can't find it to share. Please feel free to add it to the comments or anywhere you can.

    James is a fascinating perspective and this interview, I believe is possibly worth listening just as much as the 3 former ones -- just saying.

    "Great Debaters" Chris Medina Argues for a Forensic Education

    "Great Debaters" Chris Medina Argues for a Forensic Education

    Denzel Washington might be the glamorous version of how a debate coach could be, but Chris Medina (current coach of the famous program in the movie) is the modern day Melvin B. Tolson & has helped the "debate program [win] more than 50 national championships, even though the 1,300-student college competes against much larger institutions. Medina’s students are shaped more by adversity than privilege, but debate has boosted their self-confidence and self-perceptions, igniting new ambitions and intellectual passions."
